1996 dodge ram 1500 overheating

\015 Chaged water pump, radiator, thermostat, and fan clutch\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 11-12-2017

Answers :

Check the lower radiator hose to see if it has gone "soft" Check when the engine is cool and stopped, grasping the hose and giving it a squeeze, you should feel the presence of a "spring" in the hose. That should be there to prevent the hose from collapsing as the water pump draws coolant through it. Without the spring, the draw created by the pump intake, and the resulting venturi effect will collapse the hose, cutting off the flow.
